I have no record of a Helen or Mildred Tancill. I am descended from a John R. Tancill who was born in 1798 in Culpeper County, Virginia. He had a son Richard Montgomery Tancill who moved to St. Louis County, Missouri. Tancill is a very uncommon name, so there probably is a connection some time in the past. I have this information, but I do not know how accurate it is. "The Tancills originally came from Dumfries, Scotland, then went to Hastings, England. They also settled in Southwest England. One source says that the name was first spelled Tansill and that they originally were part of the McGregors of Scotland, but during the War of the Roses there were McGregors on both sides. To escape with their necks when the war ended, the McGregors on the wrong side changed their name to Tansill."
